    Hello,

    gel65 hit the nail on the head. More, and better photos are needed to give a decent opinion. Is it embroidered?, BeVo weave?, Printed? What did the vendor describe it as? Looking through"LABOR ORGANIZATIONS OF THE THIRD REICH" by Angolia and Schlicht I didn't come across this armband. They had something close but not this one.

    He said that the white circle is sewed on, the armband looks like its been in someone's attic for a while, it has an aged look but not bad

    Hello,

    Better and more photos are need to the construction can be observed. As I said in the above post"I didn't come across this armband" in my reference.

    A total fantasy design that has no chance of being original to the 3rd Reich era. The RAD wore the standard political form kampfbinde. There would be no need for this design.

    The Reichsarbeitdienst would have no reason to have such item.

    Have been seeing these fake RAd armbands more and more of late.....as has been stated above, the RAD never wore any such thing-just the plain old Party style armbands.
